Re: Next stop after Trident?

Seamasters for me. I tried Sinn and fabulous though their dive watches are I wasn't wholly committed. I've wondered about the Black Bay but can't cope with the slab sides of the case. Don't I look higher up the food chain? Well frankly there are other designs I'd love to try but wanting to try somet...

Re: CW titanium watches - have you owned one?

The C60III Elite is demonstrating its popularity here and I suspect the material is part of the appeal; iot certainly is for me. When daylight arrives I'll take a photo of its bracelet alongside steel CW bracelets. I also have a Hamtun MkII which has titanium case and bracelet and is of a different ...

Re: Returns advice

I'm not an expert but I think you can and my suggestion is that you try it and if it's a problem CW customer service will be in touch. The online form for returns requires your order number and the stock code (SKS?) for each item being returned. I think there's probably space to type in three SKS co...

Re: Zenith Chronomaster Sport

[ Very smart indeed. Neil Well having read a bit more I have changed my mind. :( Yes it looks nice, but a tool watch chronograph that can’t count hours and has the chronograph seconds running around the dial in ten seconds? Thanks but no thanks. Good article on Hodinkee that explains more about the...

It's not easy to source pins and collars, is it?
Previously I've sourced similar items for an Omega bracelet and, frankly, they are priced way in excess of their material value! :silent: :silent: :silent:

Re: Review of the C65 Chrongraph

I'd like to see photos of the C65 chrono on other than the stock bracelet? I think I need to put the watch back on the supplied bracelet: as mentioned the C60 bracelet steps down between the lugs and whilst I like the extra dimension created I really should try the intended "smooth across the lugs" ...

Re: Review of the C65 Chrongraph

That definitely looks top notch Pete, and non too shabby next to your vintage Seamaster Chronograph. Guy Sent from my Xperia 5 using Tapatalk Thanks Guy. It's a keeper! Temporarily it's on a C60 bracelet which is "my-size" and sits maybe 0.5mm below the top of the lugs so has a slight stepped look....

Re: Review of the C65 Chrongraph

If they hadn't put the screw down pushers on, then every review would be: "it's a dive watch without screw down pushers ..." You can't please all the people, all pf the time. Whoa! So now I can have dive chronos without screw-down and dive chronos with screwdowns? How's that for ticking every box? ...

Re: Bezel alignment??

If you line a piece of paper (with a nice clean edge obviously) through the 6 index and EXACTLY equidistant between the two markers at !2 does the bezel still not line up? I'm just making the point that unless the eye/camera lens is exactly aligned, it is possible for the bezel alignment to look off.

Re: Compressor Crown Issue Anyone?

Well, the crown should slide straight up the stem tube threads in a buttery-smooth action so any hint of resistance/graunch/grittiness suggests summat's up.

Just unwound mine for you and though I never find it easy with the watch on the wrist, it rolled back on without issue.
